K-10 South Lawrence Trafficway > > #K10SLT 
Overall project work is scheduled to be completed in Fall 2016

On Tuesday, November 12, 2013, a three-year construction project began to complete the six-mile four-lane K-10 South Lawrence Trafficway freeway. The project will move existing K-10 onto a new alignment that will begin at the south junction of the U.S. 59 and K-10 interchange and reconnect with existing K-10 in east Lawrence (Douglas County). Construction work on the project will be completed in phases. Each phase includes specific work and advance notification will be sent under separate cover for each phase of construction, including planned traffic impacts. An aerial map of the new K-10 South Lawrence Trafficway, including construction phasing and traffic impacts, can be found online at: http://www.ksdot.org/topekaMetro/projectstudytest.asp.

K-10 from E1650 Road to E1900 Road

24/7 LANE CLOSURES: Eastbound K-10 from E1650 Road to E1900 Road will continue to be reduced to ONE OPEN LANE and shifted onto a new pavement alignment beginning after morning rush hour on Friday December 4, weather permitting. Westbound K-10 from E1650 Road to E1900 Road will reopen to two lanes of traffic on Friday, December 11. The lane closures are needed so the contractor can continue construction work on the new K-10 and 23rd Street interchange which is part of the ongoing K-10 South Lawrence Trafficway Project (East Leg). The K-10 lane closures will be in place through Spring 2016. (REV. 12-10-15)
